PODCAST Hong Kong Bitcoiner at ‘Decentralized’ Protests: Cryptocurrency as Part of the Answer

TL;DR: We discovered a Hong Kong Bitcoiner was participating in the protests there, albeit in unconventional ways. And as demonstrations gather steam and ferocity, Beijing is thought to be lurking, waiting to crack skulls. It’s an incredibly complicated topic, and CoinSpice listeners get an inside look into the nature and tenor of protesters through “Joey,” who lives and works in the city.

Hong Kong Bitcoiner at Protests

“Joey” has been living and working in Hong Kong for nearly a decade in various capacities. He’s also a Bitcoiner, and has watched and somewhat participated in the historic protests now taking place regularly against the local and national governments.

We discuss how the unrest crept into Hong Kong, why it came about, and Joey gives interesting insights as to motivations on the street, at the barricades. In the background is a looming trade war between China and the United States, with Hong Kong possibly becoming a bargaining chip in negotiations.

He also talks about how cryptocurrency can be part of an effective resistance to government spying, harassment, and censorship.
